Vancouver Christmas Market (2011)

Event Date: Thursday, November 24, 2011

German Christmas markets are a centuries old tradition in Germany bringing together the community with fun, laughter, good food and drink. This European notion has now spread throughout North America. The Vancouver Christmas market combines an authentic Christmas German Market and is so much more than just a craft fair. The rows of little wooden huts that are decorated in pine branches, strung with little white lights provide a festive and romantic setting, a focal point in the city.

There will be a variety of performances on the market centre piece stage including traditional European choirs and dance performances. There will also be daily workshops such as chocolate making presentations, drumming workshops and bee keeping demonstrations! That’s pretty cool!

There will be a kids market where children can make their own Christmas gifts. Business people will find a fun meeting place for a quick bite or a drink after work.

There will be a mix of food and merchandise booths including some German specialties such as Bratwurst, suckling pig, and lets not forget the amazing hot spiced red wine (Gluehwein)! This market looks like it is going to be an enchanting time! We can’t wait to go!
